  • Newborn fitted diaper PDF sewing pattern

    It’s pretty basic construction.  There is a 1/2 inch seam allowance on the pattern so that this diaper can be sewn turned and top-stitched or serged.  If you are making it serged you will want to use the casing line as your guide for where to sew down your elastic.  Use 1/4 inch polybraid for legs and back.  If you are making one turned and top-stitched stitch you can tack where indicated and case after sewing while top-stitching or sew the elastic into the seam allowance and case after the fact.

    I leave a turning hole along the tummy panel edge.

    I have everything in legends on each page, if you have any questions please feel free to post here or on my Facebook page and I’ll answer you promptly.

    As always I love to see pictures of your diaper creations made using my patterns so please feel free to share here.

    As with all my patterns you are free to sell from this one as well.  You can read more about this here.

  • The Sew Easy OSFM is now available!

    Rocket Bottoms newest pattern is finally available for purchase! This is a OSFM (one size fits most) pattern. The shape of this new pattern makes it very easy to sew up into a turned and top-stitched diaper or make a serged diaper. If you have ever had trouble with serging around wings you should be able to serge this diaper up super quick and easy.

    This diaper has a shorter back wing span, no crosser tabs. There is tummy elastic for a gentle gathering along the front edge which helps with leaks if baby is a tummy sleeper. The diaper has full rear coverage and two fit options, wide and slim. The difference in the fit options is finished crotch width. The wide option turns this diaper into a great cover for your OS fitted diapers. The slim option reduces bulk through legs and in the front. There are optional hip snaps on the tummy and wing that help to prevent wing droop when baby is smaller.

    I have changed the layout of the instructions and I think you will like the changes. Included in the instructions is a chart with measurements on the diaper in a relaxed and stretched state as well as elastic lengths for the diaper. The lengths are based off 1/4 inch polybraid so if you use anything else just make sure you are cutting a piece that gives the right amount of stretch.

    You can find the pattern here


  • Rocket Bottoms TWIST Pattern is now available for purchase!

    Rocket Bottoms latest diaper sewing PDF pattern is available now!  After 4 years in the making I have finally worked out the kinks and am pleased to offer for sale a fantastic fitting, fabulous feature packed diaper sewing pattern.

    What is the TWIST?  The TWIST is a really cool diaper pattern.  It is available in standard diaper sizes newborn, small, medium and large and also a OS.  The OS is slightly larger than the large so you get the most bang for your buck with a diaper that truly goes the distance size wise.  This diaper pattern was sewn out and tested on many different sized babies and the results were fabulous.  Pictured below is a newborn TWIST bound in 3/4 inch FOE.  So cute and tiny!!

    Features!  This diaper is loaded with awesome features!  My favorite, the internal gussets.  They add no bulk to the middle of the diaper, no sagging in the front from the gussets pulling down on the diaper when in use.  They create a nice side wall to keep in the messiest of messes and are SO easy to make!

    Next really cool feature are the leak guards!  The very back and front of the inside of the diaper are made with PUL.  You can see it in the above picture.  What this does is create a leak guard no matter if your baby sleeps on their tummy or back, wetness stays in the diaper and doesn’t creep up onto their clothing or sheets!

    One of the best parts of this diaper is that is has DUAL pocket openings.  What does having two pocket openings mean for you?  Well, it makes the diaper extremely easy to stuff, even for daddies with big hands!  It also makes this a “no-touch” diaper.  I don’t know about you but I really don’t like sticking my hand into a wet diaper and pulling out that wet insert.  This style of inner design allows for your insert to agitate out in the wash!  No more digging in a diaper to fish out a wet insert.  Just dump any solids into the toilet and put the entire diaper into the pail.

    This diaper looks great turned and top-stitched, or bound in FOE.  The newborn size gives you the option of double or single row snaps.  All sizes have snap settings or placement guides for hook and loop.  I personally like to add loop fabric to the tummy panel when I make them without snaps.  Makes for easy night time changes and makes them really daddy and daycare friendly!

  • Adjusting the elastic on the inner gussets when using the TWIST pattern

    Did you know that you can use buttonhole elastic (BHE) for the gussets on the TWIST?  Using small buttons sewn at each end of the casing and BHE you can make your gussets on the OS TWIST totally adjustable for your growing baby.

    You can also adjust the elastic by undoing the tack down stitches at each end of the casing and loosening or tightening your elastic.  This is also how you would change out the elastic should you need to replace it.
